California's Drought is Stealing Your Honey

California's Central Valley, the largest agricultural sector in the nation, sustained the highest water loss it's ever recorded in 2014.

Honeybees are linked to $15 billion in US crop pollination, and California's small business beekeepers have now moved to maintaining their hives with purely artificial diets.
